Meet the team
Suzie BrooksManaging Director
Let’s start with the important bit; Suzie is a fully qualified accountant.
She’s a Chartered Certified Accountant and you’ll find her listed as such on the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) website.
Choosing this career from an early age Suzie started out as a trainee accountant. She initially chose to work within industry, as opposed to within private practice. She gained a wide range of experience as she progressed, eventually ending up as Finance Director with a team of over fifty staff across the UK.
Along the way, Suzie gained a vast array of knowledge including managing the monthly accounts production, company payroll, cash flow forecasts and monitoring, short and long term business plans, monthly board of Directors’ presentations, assisting in bespoke IT accounting systems to leading a team in the acquisition and turnaround of failing businesses.
After several decades working within industry, Suzie decided to move into private practice and worked for a local accountancy practice whilst gaining the necessary experience to obtain ger Accountancy Practising Certificate. This certificate proves her ability to offer a full range of accounting services to both individuals and companies. She set up Brooks Accountants in 2003.
Brooks Accountant’s client base has grown steadily over the years, with the clear majority of new clients coming on-board through personal referrals. Suzie is passionate about providing her clients with sound business and financial advice, as well as completing their accounts and tax returns. She prides herself on being friendly and down to earth and hates being called a boring accountant because she isn’t!
